Avid HDX DSP-acceleration gives you massive processing power
Each Avid HDX card is like having about the equivalent of an HD3 or HD4 system on a single card. To put it mildly, that's a ton of DSP power for our DAW! What's more, there's a separate FPGA processor for our mix bus, so all of our HDX card's DSP power is dedicated to running plug-ins. Each HDX card gives us 256 voices, a full four times the routing capacity of an Accel card. That means we can freely use Avid's new AAX plug-ins, without worrying about running out of voices.
Here's where it gets even cooler. HDX cards and AAX plug-ins are ready for a 64-bit world. Although Pro Tools|HDX is still in transition from 32-bit to 64-bit, we still get the advantages of onboard 64-bit architecture. For one thing, the HDX summing bus is true 64-bit, giving us amazing headroom to mix with. Speaking of headroom, Pro Tools|HDX also gives us 32-bit floating-point processing between plug-ins, increasing our mix bus's dynamic range to over 1,000dB. That makes clipping and dither build up things of the past.
Disk Caching lets us load entire sessions into RAM, giving us instant response and incredible realtime editing capabilities. Pro Tools|HDX 10.1 also gives us advanced Media Composer integration and network storage compatibility - must haves for post work.
Pro Tools|HDX 10.1 is going to rock your world!
